Moved

look here
http://www.fs.fed.us/foresthealth/technology/ in the pamphlet Lep of pacific northwest, chapter 5 p 215 it is indeed L Contenta

i have come to the conclusion this was
Lithophane contenta, a bunch of my little containers got spilled and I just found a contenta on the wall and an empty shell behind the cabinent..I couldn't find a pupa in this container after the cat knocked that box over. so I have no proof. so well wait till next year and I sure will be looking for a f and trying for eggs.
hopefully I will be able to prove myself right next year :-)
